This week, I am thinking about how and when I first purchased life insurance. My coworker Scott was talking to me about how he was going to have a baby, and he saw that I was pregnant. He suggested that I look into life insurance. I never thought about it. I took his friend's number and began my education into that arena.
Every month for four months, the insurance agent met my husband and I at a coffee house, and he educated us in the world of life insurance. He was not pushy, but he was convincing. At 8 months pregnant, we purchased life insurance for our new family!
My hotel job is a union job, and the union negotiates health insurance for all of us regularly. Luckily, we have zero monthly premiums for ourselves, and only $10 a month for all of our dependents. Doctor visits are $10. Lab tests and hospitalization is free. There are health classes and educational groups available at no cost too.
I am grateful for the opportunities provided to me and my family by my choices and by my employer.
Now, almost two decades later. I am in the wellness world, in the helping profession. I now think about life insurance and health insurance in a new way. I think about the words life insurance as a whole life experience. If I eat well and move a lot in my daily life, I will live a long life. Of course, accidents happen, and I cannot control others' actions or world disasters. So, I take a deep breath and eat the most nutrient dense foods, exercise daily, laugh and play often! That's life insurance! Health insurance is the same recipe. If I eat an anti-inflammatory protocol, full of fermented foods and greens, and continue my movement and meditation practices, I am creating my own health insurance.
To be honest, I rarely go to the doctor for big problems, only for checkups and hormonal issues related to aging. I turned my own life and health around four years ago. If I can do it, you all can too. Here's to your ultimate life and health insurance!
I want to hear from you!
